China, France for Strengthening, Expanding Bilateral Ties

Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party Xi Jinping giving a speech during the introduction of the Communist Party of China's Politburo Standing Committee in Beijing's Great Hall of the People in October last year. Mr Xi has

Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to maintain order volumes and parity between Airbus SE and rival Boeing Co., Mr. Macron told a news conference Wednesday.

"The French foreign minister's November visit to China seemed to ignore human rights, giving an impression of insincerity and inconsistency on rights issues", Jeannerod said.

In Xian, Macron said he hoped EU-Chinese relations could have a new start, based on "balanced rules", after acknowledging there had been mistrust and "legitimate questions" in China as well as fears amongst Europeans.

Xi and Macron held talks in Beijing on Tuesday.

The trip to China is well-timed to convey that message and Macron has not been shy about promoting it, declaring after he arrived that "Europe is back" and announcing that he would visit China every year of his five-year presidency.

A delegation of French business leaders traveling with Macron signed cooperation agreements with Chinese partners, many of them government-owned, in energy, telecoms, aerospace and other fields.

Gretchen Carlson To Chair Miss America Organization Board Of Directors
The revelations caused Dick Clark Productions, the group's television sponsor, to cut ties with the long-standing pageant. But in a matter of days, Haskell, Miss America president Josh Randle and board chair Lynn Weidner all resigned .

"France imports 45 billion from China but only exports 15 billion, so we have access to markets which is unbalanced, unsatisfying".

He also welcomed Macron's endorsement of his cherished One Belt, One Road project, a $1 trillion revival of ancient Silk Road land and sea trading routes.

China and France have agreed to further advance their comprehensive strategic partnership.

The environment has also been an issue during the visit, and during a speech Mr Macron said "Make our planet great again" in Chinese, a reference to Donald Trump's decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris accord on climate change. "We've never been that close to signing a commercial deal", the official said.

He also urged European nations to take a more "coordinated approach" on trade with China. But for now, it's unclear if anything will change soon. Others, however, are not as convinced, noting Xi's strong support for state-owned enterprises over the past two years.

The trip comes as Britain's impending departure from the European Union and the more inward-looking policies of U.S. President Donald Trump have raised the prospect of a possible realignment of global influence. "But at the same time, China needs the global market to cope with the growing pressure (to open up more) and its slowing economy", Zhang said.
